What makes grass appear green in color? Why don't turtles have teeth? What is a rainbow? Science is to understand the things we see — to make sense of the world around us! Science is based on curiosity, and our talented teachers reinforce the children's inherent curiosity through hands-on activities & discussion. Discussion is key, because it helps children "internalize" their observations while starting to do a higher-level thinking that enables them to begin to see the big picture, adopt Scientific methods, learning how to develop hypotheses, design ways to test, record and compare data. Through exploration & discussions, preschoolers learn that science is very much a part of their lives — and that it's a lot of fun!


Preschoolers with technology experience can use pull-down menus to launch programs, negotiate menus and interfaces, and feel comfortable using computers, digital cameras, smart toys, handheld devices and game consoles for simulations, art animation projects and even learn our unique foundation to GRAPHICAL DRAG & DROP PROGRAMMING, creating stories and looking up facts, using the mouse to negotiate a simple menu on the screen. Knowing the keyboard (e.g., ENTER, spacebar), be familiar with how to work frequently used, high quality interactive games or activities, in either screen or toy-based formats, having a basic working vocabulary of common technology terms, such as digital camera, battery, screen, computer, Internet, mouse, keyboard, and printer.


Our engineering program includes a unique and tailored curriculum introducting simple machines, building bridges, simple airplanes and elementary robotics while thinking and discussing about design and testing. Engineering projects are a great way to motivate kids to learn and explore the underlying math and science concepts while they develop engineering skills.


Of course, every subject area is important, but no program for young children could succeed without emphasizing art. Through making, looking at & talking about their own or their group's artwork, 4-5 year old children are:
- Practicing and gaining fine muscle control & strengthening eye-hand motor coordination: holding paintbrushes & learning how to control paint, crayons, scissors, and other art tools, children gain the skills necessary for later writing activities as well as a feeling of control over themselves.
- Developing perceptual abilities: Colors, shapes, forms, lines, and textures.
- Being given the opportunity to make choices and solve problems: How do you get the legs to stick on a clay figure? What color should I use?

English Language/Arts and Literacy standards such as actively engaging in group reading activities, basic phonetics, alphabet and simple word writing skills for preparing for Kindergarten are fundamental learning blocks our curriculum incorportates on each activity and project we teach.


On any given day, your child and his preschool pals divide cookies or pretzels into equal piles for snacks. They build bridges and tall towers with wooden blocks. They string beads into colorful patterns. They weigh the class rabbit and measure the length and width of its cage. They learn to balance a seesaw when one child is heavier than another. Math is helping them to make sense of the world around them and teaching them to reason and problem solve. It's not limited to a specific period or time of day instead it is a natural part of young children's play and daily activities. They explore mathematical concepts as they sort, classify, compare quantities, balance blocks, notice shapes, and find patterns.

• Numbers: Children learn about numbers by counting objects and discussing the results: "You gave Chris six goldfish crackers. How many does Susie need?"

• Geometry and spatial relations: Constructing shapes and discussing their properties. They see skinny triangles and fat triangles and upside-down triangles

• Measurement: Children compare the height of a block tower with the height of a desk or table.

• Patterns/geometry: Children become aware of patterns in their clothes. They learn to recognize patterns of different colors and sizes in beads and blocks.

• Analyzing data: Children sort objects by color, size and shape; count them; and record the data on graphs and charts.
